All-metal steel belted radial tyres (AMSBRT) for opencast handler super heavy trucks such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Belaz and others are the basis of productivity and safety of automobile equipment work in mining industry. Supercomputer modelling of thermomechanical tyres states is proposed and main features of computational solutions are discussed. Computational experiments results match with spin test results with acceptable engineering accuracy. So it is possible to predict heat generation in
